  • Poured clear with a big, fluffy, off-white foam. Retention was medium at best with some lacing.

    Beautiful, big sweet caramel malt on the nose. There is some grain and nutty malt aromas also. No hops detected.

    Taste begins with caramel malt transitioning to roasted malt in the middle, while finishing with a touch of coffee and bitterness.

    Medium mouth feel and a big carbonation presence with a slight creaminess.

    This doesn't do any ground breaking in the style but it is a solid brew. I could easily have a couple and enjoy them. Refreshing. Enjoy!
